Many of you who wonder why ReactOS is still using an "outdated Windows XP" interface are completely missing many valuable points of ReactOS. For one, most of your novice Windows users are very comfortable with Windows XP, and HATED Vista's newer interface, let alone trying to learn a new OS, such as Linux. ReactOS is a viable option for people who are still using an older computer, possibly who's hard drive crashed, and can no longer order recovery discs from the manufacturer. Most people could afford another new hard drive for around $70, but don't want to spend $200 for the retail version of Windows Vista/7. Many users and companies still use software tailored for Windows XP that have known issues running in Vista/7. Most advanced users wouldn't run ReactOS, so stop looking at it from that narrowed perspective.
